Australia 2017 World Solar Challenge Car Race

Monday, October 9, 2017 - 09:41

The World Solar Challenge has welcomed the greatest minds from around the world to Australia to challenge the norms and travel the outback in a vehicle powered only by the power of the sun.

Students from over 30 countries have engineered and built a vehicle with their own hands and powered it across some of the world's most challenging landscape, the official website reports.

The Bridgestone World Solar Challenge started in Darwin in the Northern Territory and traveled the Stuart Highway to Port Augusta and then via Highway 1 to the finish in the City of Adelaide in South Australia – 3000kms.

“This is the 30th anniversary of the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge and competitors want to be part of that. They have been drawn to the challenge of new regulations which reduced the solar array size without limiting the size of the solar car,” said Race director Chris Selwood.

The biennial event seeks to inspire some of the brightest young people on the planet to address the imperatives of sustainable transport. It features three classes that represent the diversity of solar EVs and their differing design philosophies.

The Bridgestone World Solar Challenge began on October 8 and will continue up to October 15, 2017.
